Why Jodi Engelstein, LMHC chose to be in the helping profession

For over 30 years, I have been privileged to serve clients who come to me seeking guidance and support during challenging periods of their lives. Helping others has been a calling for me, and it is a role that I embrace with passion, knowledge, and a deep commitment to each and every client who walks through my door.

My desire to be a helper and guide stems from a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I am devoted to fostering personal growth and self-exploration in my clients, as I firmly believe that these are the essential building blocks for a better and brighter future. As I continue to work in this field, I feel honored to have the opportunity to walk alongside individuals during some of their most vulnerable moments and to help them find their way towards a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

Jodi Engelstein, LMHC's approach

My therapeutic approach revolves around a holistic perspective, putting the client at the center of the process and focusing on their strengths. I draw from various therapeutic theories and strategies, tailoring them to meet the specific needs of individuals seeking assistance. My background is rooted in evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Multisystemic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Behavioral Therapy and Management, and Person-Centered Therapy.

In addition, I strongly support the use of evidence-based interventions. Mindfulness, deep breathing, and other stress reduction techniques are integral parts of my practice, along with systematic desensitization methods. Homework assignments, including goal-oriented exercises, behavioral experiments, and thought records, are used as valuable tools for growth and development.

What you can expect from sessions with Jodi Engelstein, LMHC

In our therapy sessions, the foundation is a strong alliance between myself and you as my client. This alliance is built on the principles of "unconditional positive regard," respect, and empathy. One of the core elements of our work together is active listening, where I attentively hear your story, thoughts, feelings, and reactions. Throughout this process, my aim is to provide acceptance and validation, recognizing the significance of each aspect you bring to the table.

These fundamental building blocks serve as the cornerstone of our counseling journey. By fostering an environment of acceptance and validation, we create a space where you can develop a better perception of yourself. This newfound self-perception becomes a catalyst, empowering you to take proactive steps toward personal growth, development, and empowerment. Together, we will embark on this transformative process, unlocking your potential and fostering a more fulfilling life.

The therapeutic relationship between us is of utmost importance to me, serving as the foundation upon which our therapy is built. I hold it in high regard and ensure that it is grounded in principles such as unconditional positive regard, respect, and empathy. When we engage in therapy, I actively listen to you, embracing your story, thoughts, feelings, and reactions with acceptance and validation. My aim is to provide mentorship, support, and guidance, while aligning our efforts with the goals you have set for yourself.

These goals act as the essential building blocks for our work together in therapy. They shape the direction and purpose of our sessions, allowing us to make progress and achieve meaningful outcomes. It is my privilege to serve individuals from diverse backgrounds, and my commitment to each person I work with remains unwavering. My own heritage and upbringing have profoundly influenced and enriched both my personal life and professional career. As we embark on this therapeutic journey, I strive to walk alongside you with sensitivity and compassion, acknowledging and respecting the ways in which your Jewish background and experiences have shaped you.
